With Thanksgiving a few weeks away, and Christmas and New Year's right around the corner, many a scrapper is gearing up for another attempt at a December Daily album. As appealing as the concept is to me, and as often as I tend to forget my usual failure rate when I attempt to start one each year, I have realized that there is a need for a different approach to scrapping seasons that can actually work for people like me -- you know, the bacon-eating marathon runners.
Guess what? I think I found one, in the course of contributing a winter album to Amy Heller's new workshop at Two Peas, Seasonal Storytelling!
Here are more details about the class:
Winter, spring, summer and autumn: each season brings about its own wonderful and memorable moments for us all.
Perhaps winter, when celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah and the New Year, is your most memorable time of the year. Or maybe it is spring, when your family celebrates a number of birthdays, or you love preparing your garden and celebrating Easter. Then there is summer - full of outdoor activities, the Fourth of July, camping, and family vacations. And of course, autumn, with the beginning of school, the glorious changing of nature’s color, bountiful harvests, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. When you break the year up into seasons, there certainly are plenty of stories worth telling!
In Seasonal Storytelling: Mini Books for Sharing Each Season’s Special Memories, we break down the year into the four seasons. This provides a naturally broadened perspective through which to document your special memories. Because of this broadened view, we introduce you to four different approaches to creating seasonal mini albums - Events & Traditions, Timeframes, On-the-
Go ,and Reflections. With each chapter, we will focus on a different season and share two of these four approaches for tackling that season to create a mini book filled with a memories that fits your lifestyle, your scrapping habits, and your style of creating.
Showcasing eight different and unique mini albums filled with over 100 pages (close to 200, really!) of ideas, Seasonal Storytelling covers each of the seasons, throughout four chapters. Every chapter contains a printable PDF containing two beautifully crafted mini albums along with a coordinating video. Also included are two exclusive printable journaling cards used as the base for one of the mini albums featured in the workshop.
The content of this workshop will be available immediately upon purchase. The lessons are available for you to work at your own pace and upon purchase can be accessed in the "Workshops" section under "Classes & Events." A private message board forum is also available to ask questions for Amy and to connect with other participants. Enjoy!
